Virtual Seminar Series

AREUEA is pleased to present its Virtual Seminar Series. This series provides an additional platform for exchanging ideas and disseminating research in real estate and urban economics. The Virtual Seminar Series allows AREUEA members to present rigorous and engaging research to an audience of both AREUEA members and non-members from around the world.


Any AREUEA member can submit a paper addressing any relevant research topic, including but not limited to commercial real estate, housing, mortgages, urban economics, and the intersection of any of these topics with macroeconomics. There is no expiration to the submission window; we encourage submissions at any time. Please submit your work via email to David Low ([email protected]). 


The organizing committee will choose papers based on 1) quality of the work; 2) stage of the paper (e.g., giving priority to papers that are being refined for submission to a journal); and 3) timeliness of the topic. The committee may also solicit presentations of relevant topics.


A 75-minute Zoom conference, which comprises a 45-minute presentation followed by moderated Q&A. Participants can also ask clarifying questions through the moderator during the presentation.


Anyone who registers can participate at no cost. Registered participants will receive a notification and a reminder before the seminar.  If you would like to be added to the Virtual Seminar Series email distribution list, please email David Low at [email protected].


The Virtual Seminars will be held monthly, at a minimum. AREUEA members please watch out for a registration invitation that will be sent 1-2 weeks before each seminar. We encourage you to forward the registration email to non-members for them to register and attend the seminar series.
